IT’S GETTING TO BE THAT TIME OF YEAR - the time when dental insurance benefits expire. Sure, pumpkin spice latte season may seem a bit soon to be worrying about such matters, but the truth is that the end of the year will be here before we know it, so it’s best to be prepared! Let’s look at what you need to know about using up those remaining dental benefits and how to maximize them to best meet your needs.
You’ve Already Paid for It, So You Might As Well Use It
That’s right, your money has already been spoken for in this situation, so take advantage! Dental insurance differs from traditional medical insurance in that you’re typically allowed a certain dollar amount for the year, which is available after a deductible is paid. If it is not used, it unfortunately disappears. Yes, YOUR benefits that YOU already paid for. Most plans expire at the end of the year, but there is still time to assess your situation and determine what your remaining benefits can do for you.
It’s the Perfect Opportunity to Schedule Routine Visits...
Haven't been in for a cleaning in the last six months? No problem! Many plans include two of them each year to fit with the standards of preventative dental care. Aside from maintaining a clean mouth, catching areas of concern before they develop into bigger problems is of the utmost importance. If you’ve been putting off scheduling these routine visits for yourself or your family, it’s not too late to take action and put those benefits to good use.
...Or Get a Larger Treatment Out of the Way
